Dear Martin
It could have been a Bush Stone-Curlew - they are fairly common at Dryandra.

Having just had a great holiday in Australia I wa wondering if someone could help with an ID question. While birding in Dryandra State Forest (WA) I disturbed what appeared to be a Malleefowl. It took off and flew from the path. I was happy with the ID although I only saw it for a couple of seconds. It's alarm call was mid pitch and comprised of two short notes. My field guide says that the alarm call should be a low grunt. Does anyone know what the alarm call is?

Also of interest while in Margaret River I saw a Long-billed Black Cockatoo carrying a dead Ringneck Parrot!! Has anyone seen anything like this before
